10 Legit Ways To Make Money As a Teenager [In 2020]


Is making money as a teenager as easy as it used to be?


After all, that old standby – the newspaper route – has mostly gone into the dustbin of history. I mean…who reads newspapers anymore? smh…

Meanwhile, child labor laws have cut down on the number of jobs that young people can hold.

How to make money as a teenager has become something of a matrix. You have to look for moneymaking opportunities from non-traditional sources.

But that’s not a problem, because there are more of them than ever before. We’ve come up with 50! And the only reason we stopped is that the possibilities are almost unlimited!

So, here are the ways to make money as a teenager that we thought were the best.

We left off the usual teen job situations, like fast food restaurants, grocery stores, and big-box retailers. You don’t need us to tell you about ordinary jobs.

Oh, and even though the opportunities are numbered, they’re not in any special order.

It’s mostly a matter of picking which one (or ones) will work best for you. We only numbered them so you could pick them out more easily.

Let’s get started…


People routinely pay adults to take care of their pets while they are away on vacation. But you may be able to create your own book of business by charging a little bit less than the going rate for adults.

You can find customers by advertising in your own neighborhood, and surrounding neighborhoods. You have to love pets, and the work is usually very casual.


This is a variation on pet sitting, but it tends to be more consistent. That’s because a dog needs to be walked every day, often several times.

While people are at work all day, they may need someone who will walk their dogs. You can make a steady income walking the dogs of several customers. Since you can do this in your own neighborhood, you won’t even need a car.


Practically every homeowner has a garage sale sooner or later. It’s not the garage sale itself that involves all the work. It’s the preparation.

Items have to be taken out of storage, cleaned, priced, and placed for sale. It’s a very time-consuming process, that any would-be garage saler would love to have help with.

Volunteer your services in your neighborhood, particularly in the spring and fall when garage sales are most frequent.


Are you particularly good with a musical instrument, especially one that would lend itself well to performing artists?

If you can, you might be able to work as a session musician. These are people who play in a music group but aren’t necessarily part of the group.

You get paid on a per gig basis.


These are usually temporary arrangements, most often in the summer months. You’re generally working with younger kids.

It floats somewhere between freelance work and a traditional job. You might have set hours, but there’s a lot of flexibility as to how you do the job.


This can be a welcome service for either a new mother or for one who has several young children. It’s less about babysitting (though that can be one possible outcome), and more about providing assistance.

A mom might ask you to perform certain services, such as preparing meals, organizing laundry, or feeding very young children. The arrangement can be either temporary or permanent.


If you have a talent for making crafts, you can start making some extra money selling them on Etsy.

It’s a site dedicated to those who create and sell handmade crafts.


I’m not talking about becoming a wedding photographer. People like to have photos taken at lesser events, like family gatherings and birthday parties.

If you know of such events taking place, volunteer your services as a photographer. You might charge a flat fee to attend the event, like $30 or $40. But it’s light work, and you’ll probably get free food as a fringe benefit.


Yes, this is a job, but one with a lot of perks. Not only does the pay tend to be above minimum wage, but you get to watch plenty of free movies.

You’ll also get to enjoy the benefits of air-conditioning on those hot summer days. And since movie theaters tend to draw teenagers, you’ll be in familiar company.


Adults don’t typically hire teenagers to clean their homes. But they might hire them as housecleaning help.

If someone has a specific housecleaning day, they may appreciate your services in getting the job done. This is another service that you can offer to people in your neighborhood.
